**Please note: If you have had previous microblading done elsewhere and are wanting a touch up, please send a booking inquiry to email@example.com.
A $50 non refundable booking fee is required when making your appointment. This amount will go towards your microblading session. If you need to reschedule, a minimum of one week's notice is required, or you will forfeit the booking fee. The booking fee will also be forfeited if the appointment is canceled.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi permanent, superficial solution to sparse, over plucked, over waxed and thinning eyebrows. It is ideal to covers scars, gaps, define shape, create an arch and to fill in the brows. Microblading is a manual method of depositing a small amount of pigment in the outer layer of the skin via a single-use, sterile blade. This service is best for those who have normal to slightly dry skin.
Does it hurt?
The feeling of microblading is usually described as annoying or uncomfortable. It is also compared to an intense tweezing sensation. After the "first pass" on each brow, a topical lidocaine gel is applied and you will feel very little to no pain. Towards the end of the session, the eyebrow area feels tender.
How long will Microblading last?
Microblading typically lasts one to three years depending on skin type, sun exposure and lifestyle. This is different for every person. Those with more oily skin types will likely have pigments fade quicker than others and may require more frequent touch ups.
How long does a session take?
The first session typically takes 2.5 to 3 hours. The second session, performed 6-8 weeks after the first session, typically lasts one to two hours.
What is the healing process?
The full healing process takes about one month. During this time, your brows will go through many stages of healing. Your brows will likely appear dark immediately after, and scabs begin to form a few days later. These scabs will naturally fall off on their own- resist the urge to pick at them! Once the scabs have shed, your brows may look very light for a little while. Don't panic! The true, healed result will be seen after about 30 days.
After the first session, the brow may shrink about 15-20% in size, 30-50% of the pigment may fade, and some strokes may disappear. This is completely normal and why the touch up appointment is necessary. Your brows will not be complete after only one session. More pigment is implanted to perfect the brows at the touch up session. Certain factors attribute to the final result that are out of the artists control such as skin quality, type, texture, your lifestyle (sun exposure, tanning, product used, antibiotics taken) and aftercare.
Am I a good candidate?
Microblading is NOT ideal for those who:
- are pregnant or breastfeeding
- have a history of keloids
- have cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, viral infections
- have had chemotherapy within the last year
- have bleeding disorders
- have taken Accutane within the last year
- have a skin condition on or near the eyebrows (dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, etc.)
- have dark, pre-existing eyebrow tattoo or permanent makeup
- have a transmittable blood disease
- take blood thinners
- have oily skin (strokes will end up blurring and leaving a powdery looking result, or the strokes may not stay at all)
- have porous skin (due to the skin's texture, results may look "dotted" and not as crisp)
